Tunbridge Wells Borough
Married Mary Horton [possibly Widow Horton] abt 1638 and they had 8 known children: Moses, Mary, Hopestill, infant [name unknown], Hannah, John, John and Samuel.
. . . quoting from "The Tyler Genealogy" by Willard I. Tyler Grigham . . . "Accordingly, in response to written appeal, numbers of the clan joined their "mites," to thus honor their forebear, and the memorial was dedicated at the sixth Tyler Reunion, September 4, 1901. The spot selected was beside the grave of the immigrant's eldest son, Moses, whose ancient slate slab, with its legend of "1727," has survived with wonderful completeness. Here, under a giant evergreen, upon a cubic yard of cement and cobble stones which was brought just to the surface of the ground, was placed a large hard-grained boulder brought from the old Tyler farm (now known as the Woods place), four miles distant in West Boxford; a homestead which has known Tyler blood and heirship uninterruptedly from the first generation, when it was acquired from the Indians, to the present day. Upon the boulder was securely riveted a bronze tablet, cast in Boston, which bears the following legend: [sic] --
IMMIGRANT FIRST SETTLER

I grew up in North Andover and am very familiar with this old cemetery, but had no idea my ancestors were buried here until I began researching my mother's family. What an amazing connection. Remembering all the Tylers with thanks.|
